Not all leaders are bitter......

This guy didn’t say you are bitter if you own a gun or attend church. Here is what he did say. I thought you might enjoy being reminded. Thought I'd share what my friend Trish sent me today.

'Here's my strategy on the Cold War:We win, they lose.'- RonaldReagan

'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' - RonaldReagan

'The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.' - RonaldReagan

'Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S.was too strong.' - RonaldReagan

'I have wondered at times about what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the U.S. Congress.'- Ronald Reagan

'The taxpayer: That's someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.' - RonaldReagan

'Government is like a baby: An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.' - RonaldReagan

'The nearest thing to eternal life we will ever see on this earth is a government program.' - RonaldReagan 'It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.' - RonaldReagan

'Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.' - RonaldReagan

'Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed, there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself, you can always write a book.' - RonaldReagan

'No arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is as formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.' - RonaldReagan

'If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.' -RonaldReagan

Operation INASMUCH!

A few of the patients we sang for.

My wonderful children's least a few of them.

Well, today was a very busy day for our church. It all began around 8 am this morning when countless members met in our church sanctuary to begin giving their time, talents and their hearts to the community of Pittsboro. We had several teams set up. We worked on Habitat for Humanity, built a ramp for someone, threw a baby shower for a girl at the Teen Crisis Pregnancy Center, help pay for peoples laundry at the laundromat and groceries at the store, and of course, my little group of children went to visit two nursing homes and sing to them, along with visit them afterwards and give them all a teddy bear.

Mr. Brandon singing his heart out....

I was so impressed with some of my younger children today. They really expressed to these elderly folks how much Jesus loves them. Some patients pulled at your heart strings more than other and a few even lifted you up because they were so full of joy! One particular gentleman stands out to me the most. After singing for all those gathered in the Sun Room, we ventured off to visit those confined to their rooms or just relaxing. This gentleman was sitting all alone and quiet with a chair pulled up to his bed side........reading his Bible and studying the word of John. He was so excited to see us.....and kept saying that he was reading his favorite book. It truly blessed me. He sang along with us and was thrilled when we asked if we could pray with him.

When we sang in the Alzheimer's Ward.

A few others stick out as lady was confined to her bed and had no voice box.....she was not old by any means. She just wanted us to keep singing and singing to her and wanted to pray for ever. Another was when we went into the Alzheimers Unit. There were only about 10 patients there, but it was amazing to see some join in singing the wonderful songs they sang as children. We prayed for many and to my amazement, the children were very comfortable reaching out to them. There was a time or two that a few of the younger ones got a bit fearful, but nothing major. All in all, we gave out 211 teddy bears. God is so good to us all!!

Two of my little sweethearts......Abbie and Faith (a former preK student)

An interesting thing happened on our bus ride around the community as well. There was quite a few Obama signs posted in front of the courthouse and of course you know I have to make a comment about that!!! One of the ladies is a diehard Obama supporter.......well, not as diehard as us Huckabee supporters, but as close to a diehard as a democrat can get I guess...haha Anyhow, it brought up a discussion with a few of the adults riding along about how disappointed they were that Mike wasn't still in the race and they couldn't cast their vote. Well, what do you think I did??? You guessed it.......stood up on that bus and told them all that they could still vote for Mike here on May 6th and that his name IS on the ballot!! So, I know that I have at least 4 more votes going for Mike on the 6th. Next week-end is our district convention.......can't wait to go showing my support off for Mike there! So, a lot was accomplished today. And I even got some of my much needed and loved political work sewn in.

You can just forget that this is yours truly directing the kids.........

Huck PAC is here!!!

Well, it's official! The Mike Huckabee HQ's website has been changed over to Huck PAC. That's right, a brand new website to keep us informed on all the candidates that believe in the same issues that Mike believes in, as well as us conservative voters. Please check out this new launching and don't wait to get involved!!! I am so excited to begin another journey with the Huckabee family! I expect to see you all there now!!!

What would Huckabee Do???

I came across this article today and I couldn't think of a better way to sum things up right now. What would Mike be doing? He'd be respectful, but truthful. Oh how I wish I had the opportunity to hear him preach a sermon somewhere! I am so sick of hearing about Hillary and Obama.......they are both full of it and need to just step aside. Unfortunately, it's sad for the republican party because we have no race on that side and from the majority of the blogs I've read, people are finally starting to open their eyes and see things more clearly and wish that they could go back and vote all over again. Those who haven't voted yet, you still have the chance. Vote for YOUR choice.......not the choice we are told we have.

What Would Huckabee Do?

Watching John McCain try to capitalize on Sen. Barack Obama's "bitter" comments last week, one can't help but wonder how much better Mike Huckabee would have done.

With Huckabee's pastor's background and his ability to deliver the devastating one-liner, you have to imagine Obama would be sweating right now if he were facing the former Arkansas governor.

Huckabee could say he doesn't know what motivates Obama's church-going, but as former pastor himself he knows bitterness is not what filled the pews at his church. He could say having come from humble beginnings in Hope, Ark., he knows about small-town Americans and understands it's not bitterness but love of hunting, or self-defense, or freedom, that makes them appreciate the Second Amendment.

Luckily for Obama, if he wins Democrats' nomination he will face McCain, who has fumbled for a line of attack to capitalize on Obama's gaffe.

This was his explanation this morning to newspaper executives:

"I think those comments are elitist. I think that anybody who disparages people who are hardworking, honest, dedicated people who have cherished the Second Amendment and the right to hunt and the right to observe that — and their values and their culture that they value and that they've grown up with, and sometimes in the case of generations and saying that's because they're unhappy with their economic conditions — I think that's a fundamental contradiction of what I believe America's all about, that I tried to describe in my remarks."

That underscores something that's become clear — out of all the candidates who ran for the Republican nomination, McCain may be the least ready to capitalize on his opponents' gaffes, excepting when they stumble on foreign policy.

That may turn out to be a good thing for the political debate. McCain has said he wants to keep it a serious policy discussion among friends, not a bitter exchange of insults. But Obama's comments strike me as the sort of thing McCain should want to have a serious discussion on. Those comments give insight into the man — equating belief in God with someone's gun-rights position, or with "anti-immigrant" or "anti-trade" sentiment, sort of tends to tell you how he views religion.

Happy 2nd Birthday Meadow!!

Well, today is Meadow's 2nd birthday. Want to hear the clincher?? I didn't remember until almost an hour ago!!! Whew! Things have been so busy around here and those that know me can tell you that I would never miss one of my dogs birthdays! haha So today, our little rescued girl turns 2! I cannot believe we've had her for almost a year and a half now. She sure hasn't changed any....hehe

Today is actually a nice day. Brandon has another baseball game tonight and Brady is going away camping with the Boy Scouts this w/e. Brittany has to work. Yippee!!! I may actually get some Spring cleaning done.

I cannot wait to tell you all about the teleconference with Gov. Huckabee last night. I'm hoping to get on the blog tonight after the game and spend some time writing up all the goodies. I took 6 pages of notes if that tells you anything. Well, I guess I need to get Brandon's baseball uniform ready to go and figure out what is going to be for supper.
Meadow's Birthday Wish: "If I could have one would be to go to the White House and congratulate Gov. Huckabee on the Presidential win."

New look

Well, I thought I'd change it up a bit. After all, Mike is getting ready to start anew so I might as well follow suit! I cannot wait for his big "unveiling" on April 15th on his website!!! Tomorrow evening, there will be a teleconference with Gov. Huckabee. If anyone is interested in any information, let me know.

On to family news......Brandon won his first baseball game on Tuesday evening. They won 13-2! I was thrilled because that meant "Coach Eric" would be in a happy mood for the rest of the night. Britt has been working hard at Lowe's. I'm so thankful she has that job. For more reasons than one let me tell ya!!! Brady, well, he's the batboy for the Pirates and is probably going to gear up and play baseball himself in May. They are both so busy with Boy Scouts that he's satisfied with the time he's investing there.

Well, I have a good bit of housework to do. It's take some work to get those muddy baseball pants clean! If you have time, go to and sign the petition before April 15th. I'm almost finished reading the first book and I'm amazed at everything I'm learning!!! Check out the excitement!

Everyone check it out!!!

Go to and see the latest!!!

I can't handle the suspense!!!!!

Electability of Mike Huckabee

Yes, I know it's been a while since my last post. It has taken me a good week to get back into the routine of things around here now that spring break is over and classes and preschool is back in session. The semester ends at the end of the month also so all the big literacy projects are due for my class. EricB posted the following:

"The argument goes something like this:

I wanted to share a fellow Hucks Army members comments with you all today. I believe that it is something we all need to take into consideration.

Mitt Romney will lose because some Christians will not vote for a Mormon (I know some personally who have said this). He will also lose because of the flip-flopping on issues. People like a president who is genuine. That's why Bush beat Kerry in 2004. Compare Romney to John Kerry.

Fred Thompson would rally the Republican base to support him, but he's not very charismatic or likable. Independents and Democrats would never vote for him. He also has a problem with women voters not liking him. He's good on issues, but would lose to the relentless Clinton machine. Compare Thompson to Bob Dole.

Rudy Giuliani would attract some independents and Democrats, but he would lose far more conservative Republicans. Many will stay home and not vote at all. Some will even vote 3rd party, which is the same basically as not voting. He's also not a very nice person. The campaign with Clinton would be vicious, turning a lot of people off, so he would lose due to poor turnout.

John McCain would have a good chance at winning, and so would Mike Huckabee. Both of them would have the Republican base behind them, and both could attract independents and Democrats, though I think Huckabee would do even better than McCain. Also, Democrats are afraid of Huckabee more than any other candidate out there. I try to point out the electability of Huckabee and McCain without appearing to be plugging too much for one particular candidate. People are turned off by random "I LIKE MIKE!" posts. If we push them away from Thompson, Giuliani, and Romney and towards Huckabee and McCain, they will come to the conclusion themselves! That's how I came onboard! I saw that only McCain or Huckabee could win. I compared the two of them on the issues and decided I liked Huckabee better due to McCain immigration stance. Try this tactic to win supporters. It's very effective."

Now, for those of you who are Huckabee supporters, EricB makes some very good and crucial points. Keeping pushing for Mike.........we have quite a few primary elections to go yet.
